Publisher's Summary

"Gracie and I were perfect for radio. Both of us could stand still in front of a microphone and read out loud. Gracie had a terrific voice, and I had Gracie. And that's all it took."
—George Burns

In the spring of 1947, Gracie turned her eye toward things that are fresh and new: a new hat, a new hemline, and a new home. The real-estate wrangling of Beverly Hills' most brilliantly befuddled wife finds the Burnses bunking with various members of the cast, occupying a janitor's apartment, and even living seperately at the YMCA/YWCA. All's well that ends well...but until then, it's hilarious!

First-rate supporting players fan the flames of the mirthful misfortune, including Bill Goodwin, Elvia Allman, Hans Conried, Mel Blanc, Elliott Lewis, Verna Felton, Bea Benaderet, and more.

Includes eight digitally remastered and restored episodes of Maxwell House Coffee Time

Episodes include: "Easter Hat War Counsel", 04-03-47; "Selling the House", 04-10-47; "House Is Built over a Swamp", 04-17-47; "Moving in with Bill Goodwin", 04-24-47; "George the Janitor", 05-01-47; "YMCA", 05-08-47; "Gracie Treats George Like a King", 05-15-47; and Short Skirts, 09-18-47, with guest star Edith Head.
